You may also have a leaking injection pump. Do you see/smell any diesel
on it? If so, you can cleanly and carefully remove the top banjo bolt
on the ip (the one with the return line coming out of it) and pour clean
diesel through a coffee filter to fill up the pump. If it's a turbo
it's easier to pull the return line and hook up a cheapo vacuum and pull
fuel through the ip until it's full.. (this technique also work on the
plain NA ones) Fred Meyer has the orange vacuum transfer pumps for about
10 bucks, but you may need a little hose adapter from the hardware or
autoparts store to hook it up to the return line (the big one).
